Anyone up for some of this online this weekend?  Say, Saturday night?  The weather's going to be awful in the eastern US, so I might as well stay in!

So, are we still doing this?  I can set it up if need be.

Teams as of posting:

TML - Penguins
Poly Cat - Flyers
pr0ner - Flames
Semaj - Devils
stiffler - Thrashers
gellar - Kings
Devil - Oilers
Tebunker - Bruins

We've got 8 teams, if everyone's still interested; I can set up some tourney brackets and get this thing rolling!  Lemme know!

Can you link that post?  I was wondering why the gameplay was SOO much harder on All-Star than it was on Pro.

Then again, even with that "SOO" much harder gameplay, I was still able to either squeak out a win or lose by 1.

Online soon, Devil?

Don't forget, my gamer tag is pr0ner with a zero, not an O.

Don't you think we should find at least one more to make things even so players don't have bye weeks?

When are you up for some ESPN NHL 2K5?  biggrin

Oh and real quick, am I missing something or can you not change jerseys?  I want alternates, historic, etc. - but no can do.  And btw, I spotted a couple of nifty unlockables in the Skybox.  One includes playing in the Heritage Classic and the other is an old-school video game hockey rink...kind of interesting in what that means.


When playing with the Flames last night, I noticed a home jersey, an away jersey, an alternate jersey, and a home and away "vintage" (from '95 or so) already unlocked; all I had to do was press the R trigger to get them.  Other jerseys were there for unlocking.  I guess it all depends on the team.

My impressions:

The gameplay graphics don't look as sharp as last year, but that doesn't bother me much.  The ESPN sound thing is a little off, too.  I would compare it to NCAA 2005, where the announcers can be a bit hard to hear sometimes.  But, the soundeffects themselves are great.

The new fighting engine will take a bit of getting used to.  I won my first fight, but lost all the rest.  What's the average number of fights you all are getting in a 5 minute period game?  I'm getting 2-3 each game (I've only played 3, though).

Penalties seem to be called a lot more with a rougher game.  Chris Simon went to the box 7 (!!) times one game.  Seems to be too many 2-minute spearing calls, too.  But, I fixed this problem by playing a much less physical game the next time out.

I'm playing on All-Star difficulty.  I haven't won yet, since I'm playing against Tampa Bay using the Calgary Flames.  Scores were 4-2, 2-1 (OT), 2-1.  However, all 4 of my goals were scored differently.  A diving goal by Yelle and a wicked slapper from the bottom of the left circle by Iginla the first game.  A blast to the top left corner from the right point by Leopold in the second game just after entering the zone.  And, a top glove side wrister on a breakway by Iginla in the third.  Haven't scored a one-timer yet, though.  Oh yeah, I've managed to keep all the games close until the very end, when the computer will score a cheap (at least to me) goal.  Anyone else seeing this?

Puck physics seem a bit off after hitting the goalie, with a lot of pucks flying straight up or straight over the goal, but I think I can get used to that.  Goalie passing seems improved for me, though.

Overall verdict: Thumbs up so far!

You should be able to do substituions by package in ESPN.  At least, I remember seeing the screens in the game for doing so.

No no  no, if I put Kennison as my returner, Dante Hall gets kicked out completely from returning. You can't pick you backup or second guy. It just says pick who you want to start. It's not like the rest of the depth chart system.

I know how to use the game, it's just not an easy to use system.


Sure you can.  Playing online lately, I notice my special teams are borked, but I have no problems whatsoever getting Dante Hall as my number 1 kickoff returner and Derrick Blaylock as my number 2.

Tebunker just has a case of operator error, methinks.

We all know where my heart lies but if Semaj wants the best team in the NHL over the past 10 years, then I can adjust.

It might be good for me to take a team that doesn't have the best goaltender in the history of the game along with the best defensive corps ever assembled and...ummm...Elias.

I'll get to feel like the rest of you guys by playing with an inferior team.

 Tongue  :wink:


You can't even beat me using the Devils while I'm using the Flames!  You're all talk!

Well, I will only be getting one of these this year.  Last year, ESPN sat around collecting dust cause I liked EA's better.

I am expecting some great comparisons from you guys this year to help me make the correct decision on which one to get.

LD


Ponch!

ESPN NHL: $20
NHL 2005: $50

The choice is obvious!

Just think of the poor guy who took the 'fins.

No Ricky  (retired)

No David Boston  (season ending injury)

OUCH !!!!


Haha.  I was talking about Trent Green in my offline franchise.  Trent Green is fully healthy in real life, as far as I know.  smile

In still in with the Chiefs.

I wonder if playing the last half of my first franchise season with Todd Collins or Chris Redman at QB instead of Trent Green will make me suck when I play online...damn injuries....

I can't find your e-mail address on your profile, so I'll just drop a message here.  How does sometime around 7-7:15 sound for tonight?  I can't do too much later, since I have a hockey game at 10 and need to eat beforehand.

Hey Lockdown!

Devil and I just tried playing 4 times.   The most plays we got in past kickoff was 2.  So, it's not just you!

Sadly, Devil got charged with drops on all 4 games, so I came away with 4 cheap wins.
